Mashed Cauliflower & Celery Root with Chives

Serves 4

This variation of mashed cauliflower makes a perfect low-carb side dish for a Mother’s Day brunch. Omit the chives if you’re going to top it with gravy.

1 medium head cauliflower, cut into small florets

1 small celery root (also called celeriac), peeled and cut into ½-inch cubes

3 Tbs. organic pasture-raised butter or organic extra-virgin olive oil

½ tsp. unrefined sea salt

1-2 Tbs. chopped fresh chives

  1. Place steamer basket in large pot, and fill with water to just below basket. Bring water
    to a full boil. Add cauliflower and celery root, cover, and steam until fork-tender, about 12-15 minutes.
  2. Remove cauliflower and celery root from pot, drain water, and return vegetables to pot. Add butter and salt, and combine ingredients with immersion blender* until smooth. Taste, and adjust seasoning if desired. Mix in chives, and serve.
